MABR Technology: The New Triple Threat for Energy, Capacity and N20 Emission Benefits

In the kNOW webinar by Jacobs

Advancements in MABR technology are opening the way to more energy-efficient operations for water resource recovery facilities. What if we showed you how we’ve helped utilities deploy MABR technology to deliver further energy savings, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and requiring a much smaller facility footprint?

In this “In the kNOW” webinar, we will discuss the applicability of MABR, benefits and lessons from Ejby Mølle Water Resource Recovery Facility, Denmark, and Elmira Wastewater Treatment Plant in Canada, as well as key considerations when incorporating MABR as part of upgrading and expansion plans.
